Art and Opportunity: Ordinary Art Gallery Opens for Business

A new center for the arts has arrived in downtown Leesburg amid the vintage shops and lively bars. The Ordinary Art Gallery and Studio, opened in July by Sharon Virts and her son, Lucas Mason, is illuminated by bright white walls and wide windows that stretch to the ceiling. It is filled with artwork of all kinds—from vibrant canvases of nature scenes to small graphite sketches depicting historical figures and moments.
